Hello,
you can access via USB only SD card on your camcoder.
The only way to transfer from the tape is via Firewire (IEE 1394) . You should have this port on your PC or laptop, if not you can buy external firewire card .
regards,
Konstantin

You are finding the same problems as most Hard-drive and DVD recording cam user these media's simply do not work, they are too un-reliable to put your special holidays and good events on, the only way is TAPE cameras (unless you are not too bothered about loss of your special times.
Sony have dropped DVD cameras already after 3 years of people having problems, and I hear that the hard-drive models will go the same way next year when new tape models come out in the spring.

How to connect


Unfortunately those old camcorders generally aren't compatible with modern computers. But don't give up hope, you may be able to find back roads and such to get it onto a computer. I'd suggest doing some research on the computer. Hope that helps.

Trying to play off-camera stored video, when replaced onto SD card in camera


Did you change the file name on the original video? Are you able to put the video back onto the camera? If you changed the file name, you can't put it back onto the camera. It also needs to be in AVI format which is the video format that the camera records in.

Hope this helps!

Putting video footage on my computer


To get your footage into the computer from DV tape you need a four pin firewire (IEEE1493 or iLink) cable from the camera to a six pin cable into the computer. USB will not do a proper job, it's for downloding photos or as you already mentioned, Web caming.
